*Whoso pultrlh his trust in the Lord shall be
j 'Wi Alts with tlic Fhüistlnes con
ifl I tinuing, David was made a
regular soldier, with com
mand over a regiment and
closely In touch with King Saul. Vic
tory enme wherever David was en
gaged, and King Saul saw the people's
admiration turned from himself to Da
vid. The sentiment reached a climax
when, on the return from a victory,
the women came forth singing,
"Saul hath slain his thousands,
But David his tens ot thousands!"
Jealousy took full possession of the
king, and thenceforth Ills one purpose
seems to have been to destroy David.
It was a secret withheld from him that
David was already anointed to be his
successor. He merely knew that Sam
uel the Prophet had told him that in
consequence of his failure to carry out
the Divine instruc
tions regarding the
kingdom would be
taken from him und
ills family and giv
en to nnother.
Jealousy is the
hitter fruit of self
ishness. It unbal
ances reason, extin
and subjects ils pos
sessor to horrible Said Throwing Jure
melancholy. It is* ,m '
the most tefrible, and the most foolish,
manifestation of selfishness. Every
one recognizing it in himself should seek
victory through vigilance and prayer.
Saul'« Jealousy Was Crafty.
When under control of jealousy,
King Saul is described as having an
evil spirit from the Lord—more prop
erly, an evil spirit opposite from (he
Lord's Spirit of kindness, justice, love.
Sometimes David could soothe him by
skilful playing on a harp; yet he knew
the king's trencherous mood, and on
tw T o occasions hindered Saul from
throwing at him a javelin.
Intent upon drawing him into a quar
rel, the king promised David his eldet
daughter to wife, and then gave her to
another. David, however, discreetly
commented that he was neither of a
sufficiently noble family nor financial
ly able to expect such honors. Anoth
er trap was to betroth to him the
king's younger daughter, Mlchal. Da
vid again told of his unworthiness and
Ills lack of wealth, whereupon Saul
stipulated that her dowry should be
the evidence of the killing of n bun
dred Philistines. No doubt he hoped
thnt David would lose his life; but
Instead, David killed twice the num
ber and received Saul's daughter.
Finally the king told Jonathan and
his courtiers that David must die.
Jonathan's sentiment was as loving
and brotherly as his father's was cruel,
jealous, selfish. It was Jonathan who
would lose by David's attainment of
the throne. Hence the love of Jona
than has become a proverb.
Jonathan interceded with his father
for David. The plea was successful.
David again became a member of the
royal household, but only for a time.
The king was uot without noble senti
ments, but they were not deep enough
to control his life. He was under con
trol of n selfish spirit, which is opposite
from the Spirit of God.
Ere long, in a jealous fit the king
threw his javelin with deadly aim;
but David quickly dodged it. David
went to his room; but a guard had
been stationed there, instructed that
upon coming forth he was to be killed.
Ilis wife assisted him to escape by let
ting him down out of a window.
Two Hundred Lives For a Wife.
Let us now inquire how David's
course in killing two hundred human
beings for a wife squares with the
principles of justice, which the Bible
everywhere maintains. First, we must
have in mind the
being a Jew under
the Law Covenant
and being a Chris
tian under the
headship of Christ.
Second, we must
remember thnt the
Bible tenches that
tlie penalty of sin
is death—uot tor
ment after death;
that this penalty
was justly inflicted upon Father Adam
ho a use ot his wilful sin; and that uis
family die because the seeds of death
are in us 1'rom our birth.
From this viewpoint, ours Is a world
of convicts under death-sentence. This
accounts for God's permitting various
deatli-deniing circumstances to control
— famine, pestilences, cyclones, etc.
When we come to see thut the same
God who justly condemned all through
one man's disobedience has made pro
vision' for the Justification of all
through Christ's obedience unto death,
we see things in a new light.
David must be Judged by the Law
under which his nation was placed al
Mount Sinai. The Israelites were In
formed that the Canaani.tes had allow
ed their cup of iniquity to come to the
full, and that Israel was given that
entire land. David, therefore, was
carrying out the Divine Instruction.

Keeping up with the procession is not enough for the General—he
must lead. And lead he does —in volume, quality and price.
The General's leadership is due to the enormous resources at
his command —the five in s of modern manufacturing — men,
money, mills, jnachinery and materials.
Men who have learned the roofing business
through years of practical experience are in
charge of every department of the business.
Men who have made a life study of the
blending of asphalts comprise the General's
Board of Expert Chemists.
Money—the means to promote efficiency,
increase out-put, reduce cost, prevent waste
—is at the General's call in abundance.
Mills—the largest roofing mills in the v ^rlcl
are the General's. They are advantageously
located at points where cost of fuel, access
to raw materials and quick distribution of
of finished products are most favorable.
Machinery — the most modern known to
the roofing business, equips each of the
General's enormous mills. Not a dollar is
left unspent which would speed up produc
tion, increase quality or lower costs.
Materials-—the food of the mills—is bought
by the General in enormous quantities.and
stored. This means the pick of the market
and favorable buying, and no loss from idle
machinery, due to shortage of materials.
Thus the success of CERTAIN-TEED
Roofing i,s no secret, but is due to a combin
ation of resources and experience without
parallel in the roofing business.
CERTAIN-TEED is made of the best
quality roofing felt, thoroughly saturated
with a scientific blend of soft asphalts, the
formula of the General's board of expert
chemists. It is then coated with a blend of
harder asphalts, which keeps the inner
saturation soft and prevents the drying-out
so destructive to the ordinary roof.
CERTAIN-TEED is guaranteed for 5, 10
or 15 years, according to ply (1, 2 or 3).
Experience proves that it lasts longer.
CERTAIN-TEED is made in rolls; also in
slate-surfaced shingles. There is a type of
CERTAIN-TEED for every kind of build
ing, with flat or pitched roof, from sky
scraper to small residence or out-building.
CERTAIN-TEED is sold by responsible
dealers all over the world, at reasonable
prices. Investigate it before you decide on
any type of roof.
